Christmas Decorating Part 2

The decorating for Christmas is finally done...and about a week later than I intended to have it all up! Superman was less than enthusiastic about this process, that's putting it mildly. I can't wait until the day we have pull down attic stairs so that I can take care of getting the Christmas stuff up and down from the attic on my own.

We cut our tree from a family owned Christmas Tree Farm just about a mile from our house. This was not my first choice for farms because they do not shape or weed their trees. Many of the trees had bittersweet growing up inside them. We walked around for a while looking for the 'perfect' tree. I came to the realization this year, that all Christmas trees are perfect once you get the decorations on them. Our truck is out of commission for a while, so we put the tree in the trunk of Superman's car with the trunk open and drove real slow.

The trees are all up and the December calendar seems to be flying! Now come the Christmas cards. I've always made our own and the years we haven't sent any are because I never got around to making them!

Below are the photos of our trees. Enjoy the day - Wonderwoman
